Hello all, not sure if this is even possible but I'd like to know:

Is there a trick to make the backlight on Tecsun PLL 660 stay on all the time? I love the radio except for that minor complaint. Sometimes users discover ways to do this kind of thing (hitting certain buttons in combination or whatever). Not really looking to get it modified, just want to know if there is some kind of trick to do that with backlight. Just thought I'd ask.

Thanks if anyone happens to know how to do this.

Scott

Scott please do not cross post the same question to another forum (in this case, the SW Broadcast forum). This is not permitted here.

I have dropped the duplicate post. Please wait for someone to answer you, or if no one does, check out the many Yahoo groups that exist for radio support.

Thank you for your future cooperation...Onward.....Mike

Scott, the radio uses an "intelligent light function" to reduce battery consumption. As to any key function to have the light stay on, I don't think one exist, or has anyone posted in other groups as to this, modifications might be the only way.

I just received one today. I'm loving it so far. I've seen a lot of people asking for this feature and as far as I can tell it is not something anyone has figured out. I don't think this is an available option.
